Recently, I was asked to pick one lesson my mother taught me, and I found myself quiet for several minutes—how could I pick just one thing? My mother taught me nearly everything I know. My mother was very adamant about being an independent woman. As a single parent, I know my mother wanted to instill this trait in me not only because she wanted me to grow up to rely on myself for financial stability but also because she wanted me to take responsibility in creating my own happiness. My mother forewarned me about gender inequality.
Throughout the years, my mom has taught me quite a bit. She's worked her hardest to be the best mom she could be, and through the way she has taught me things I will take with me for the rest of my life -- and she probably doesn't even realize it. These are 8 of the things my mom has taught me:. I'm the type of person who wears their heart on their sleeve. I try, but I can't control it -- everyone knows exactly what mood I'm in no matter what I want to show them.
I can definitely say that I have a new respect for mothers since becoming one - it is the best job, but by no means is it an easy one! So, I decided to write a little piece about my own mom because she is the best person in my life, and I am so thankful that God gave me her as a mother throughout my journey in life. I'll start by saying my mom, Margarita, has the biggest heart! She was born to be a mom, and she makes it look easy.
Mothers, you guys have one of the toughest jobs on the planet that takes more strength, compassion and patience than most anything else. Thanks to my amazing mom for all she has taught me! I am who I am because of her.
